About the maker:
Fiona Kerr studied at Buckinghamshire University College in High Wycombe, then moved to Northern Ireland and as an apprentice to one of the country’s leading jewellers she gained extensive knowledge in jewellery making techniques and manufacturing processes. Her first collection came out in 2002, and since then Fiona aims to create classic, elegant jewellery with a modern twist – jewellery to be loved and cherished and above all, worn.
Her early appreciation of the natural world shines through in all her collections, which are hand made in her small stone built workshop in co. Fermanagh. ‘I love working with precious metals at the jeweller’s bench, combining contrasting textures with the polished lustres of gold and silver, adorning with shimmering precious and semi-precious gemstones, the process of creation is an endless fascination for me.’
